The aim of the research is to examine the effects of violin students' use of video recording technology in their daily practices on violin performances. The research was designed in a mixed design in which quantitative and qualitative research methods were used together. In the quantitative part of the research, the single-group pre-test-post-test model was used, and in the qualitative part, the case study model was used in which the opinions of violin students on the use of video recording technology in their daily practices were determined. The study group of the research consists of 6 first-year violin students studying at Balıkesir University Necatibey Faculty of Education, Department of Fine Arts Education, Department of Music Education. In the research, "Performance Evaluation Scale for Musical and Technical Skills" developed by Parasız (2009) and semi-structured interview form developed by the researcher were used as datas collection devices. The daily practices of violin students, which were recorded using video recording technology, were evaluated by both 6 violin students and 6 violin educators who are experts in their field, using a performance evaluation scale. The interview method was used to determine the opinions of 6 violin students about the use of video recording technology in their daily practices. As a result of the research, it was determined that there was a significant difference in terms of pre-test-post-test scores in the performance evaluations of field experts and violin students. In addition, the opinions obtained from the students indicated that the students were able to realize their mistakes and deficiencies in self-assessment through video recording and that they were able to correct them to a large extent.
